Have you heard about the National Popular Vote Bill? It’s an effort to do   an end-run around the Electoral College, requiring state electors to cast their ballots for the winner of the national popular vote. It is already signed into law by 4 states and 43 other state legislatures are considering it. When enough states sign to account for 270 electoral votes, it becomes the law.

But election 2008 reminds us that our state-based election system works.  Candidates need to go to border states to discuss immigration, to the industrial states to talk jobs.  We don’t need campaigns in jus the big cities or on television.  And we don’t need a national recount for president, as we would have had in 2000 without the Electoral College.
Just say”no” to the national popular vote.
